Tell Me A Storia

Hello, sweet friends! We are back and, whew, it feels so good! Spring is here in Asheville and we thought that there’s no better way to bring the Minx Blog back than with the Botanical Gardens as a backdrop & featuring two Spring dress looks! We are so thrilled to have Carrie & Grace modeling for us this season– let’s make some introductions. These two lovely locals embody a soft strength that perfectly encapsulates what Minx is all about. Carrie works out of a collective space with other artists and makers in Marshall & spends her time traveling all over searching for beautiful vintage finds to bring back to Asheville. Grace is a visual artist and weaver whose work can be found in coffee shops, art stores, and galleries all over Asheville & beyond. It was such a pleasure to work with them, and we are thrilled to share these looks with you all! We are also honored to have our dear Minxie, Megan shooting photos for the blog. She is not only a treasured Minxie in the shop but is also a talented photographer & we’re stoked to have her on the Minx Blog team.

What Would Jane Do?

Hi Spring! The Minxies are thrilled you’ve arrived! The time has come for strolls in the park, outdoor picnics, riverside get-togethers, Easter celebrations, weddings galore- and so, so much more! And believe us, we are READY. Needing that staple piece to seamlessly guide you through all of your Springtime events? Two words: Susana Monaco. Now, if you’ve been with us for awhile this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We love the sturdy, yet extreme comfort of the fabric used in all her pieces. The fit is incomparable and these pieces are made to hold their shape through many, many wears. This lilac color is the epitome of Spring to us! Its pastel and bright, yet can still be styled as a neutral if that’s more of your color pallet. Grab a light layer for those crisp mornings and cooling breeze, and you’ll be totally set for whatever comes your way this season.

This dress is ideal for the warm spring evenings we’re in for. This rosy, new heat makes us want to dress up a little and go out, out, out! So say goodbye to your buttoned-up winter fare and find something that reflects the change of weather and your good mood that’s sure to follow.

perfectly pastoral

This look is:  little bit first kiss, a little bit C.M.T., a little bit looooong days of endless summer vacation… in the best of ways. So shimmy into a little floral frock and celebrate spring and youth, and feel as carefree as you can be.
